“As the law currently is in Texas, animals are treated as property. Property is either separate or community. Separate is when you have your miniature schnauzer before you were with your significant other. Community is when you and your significant other battle it out for weeks and months before picking the perfect ONE.
The Court will often support agreements made by the parties, even if they agree to share Fluffy with one week with one and the next with the other. However, unlike Spain and France, when parties cannot agree and ask the Court to make decisions, pets will not be treated like family.
Like children, you need to be cautious who you share your pet with, because deciding who keeps your beloved Snoopy during the Divorce may become an issue.
Many of our attorneys at Modern Family Law, are pet lovers and may have a tip or two to help you and Snoopy. Give us a call today. ”
